Acknowledging the accepting the role that men and boys have in realising a gender-based violence-free society, and in recognition of the massive investments of government, civil society and the academic community to shift the dominant narrative of boys and men as perpetrators of violence against women and children to peaceful, productive citizens promoting gender equality and non-violence, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and the Regional Psychosocial Support Initiative (REPSSI) are inviting 50 critical stakeholders to an inaugural ‘Nurturing Non-violent Boys’ conversation.
A diverse panel will share evidence of promising care practices, policies and interventions focusing on the boy child, as well as make recommendations for collective action towards successfully reducing and eventually eliminating violence against women and children through nurturing peaceful boys.
The panelists include: NMCF Interim CEO, Dr Stanley Maphosa (PhD), Senior Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Practitioner, Charlotte Nonkululeko Motsoari, Author, Founder and Senior Mentor of the Young Men Movement, kabelo Chabalala, Activist, Founder of Anti Vioelnce Buddies Club, Nehwoh Belinda, Afrika Tikkun Rep, Segopotso Maribe and Senior Lecturer at the University of Witwatersrand, Prof. Malose Langa.

Part of my work involves advocating for clients’ access to medical, social and legal services with the aim of promoting holistic wellbeing.
My professional interests are around providing trauma-informed mental health and psychosocial services to individuals, group and communities as well as the integration of contextually relevant MHPSS interventions within processes of rehabilitation.
I also provide capacity building and support to local stakeholders and regional organisations around wellness, trauma informed practice and integration of MHPSS as part of transitional justice processes.
I also provide supervision support for students and interns.

Being the winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyk from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m). I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me, my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at firstname.lastname@example.org OR WHATSAPP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. My advise is when you win, do not fail to appreciate his good work too. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top
